    Absolutely love Keypay and its integration with Xero. Keypay support is brilliant when needed, but once everything is set up its an absolute breeze. Also love its capabilities when it comes to accruing and using TIL.

    Great payroll system particularly for those using Australian award pay rates and conditions

    KeyPay has worked so well for our business, the preloaded awards and their easy and timely evolution through legislation changed to STP and during the COVID pandemic have taken the hassle and risk out of payroll compliance.
